As summer begins, we also kick off our 3rd annual pedometer challenge. Once again, a $10,000 donation is on the line!
The 2015 Strides Against Cancer is being held June 15-August 9. During the eight weeks, ms employees have been challenged with a company-wide goal of 84,000,000 steps! After a successful challenge last year, ms is keeping the motivation going by donating $10,000 to the American Cancer Society once the step goal is met.
Why the American Cancer Society?
Nearly 14.5 million Americans have been directly impacted by cancer, including those currently diagnosed and those in remission. Additionally, around 1,658,370 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed this year.
Many cancers can be prevented by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Those who smoke, have an unhealthy diet, and are physically inactive have a greater risk of cancer. This pedometer challenge is one way for ms to encourage a healthy lifestyle both inside and outside office walls.
Follow our 84,000,000 step goal progress with weekly updates on social media. Let’s take strides against cancer!
